Opened in 2003 by three brothers from Rimini, Italy, this local hotspot sits right on the main drag in the center of town. It’s easy to spot, with white muslin drapes hanging from wooden posts and separating the open-air dining room from the busy streets beyond the veils. Wood-oven pizzas and a wide range of homemade pastas form the backbone of the extensive menu. But you can also order up fresh whole fish, and an assortment of chicken and beef main dishes emphasizing the cuisine of northern Italy. Fresh lobster ravioli are a house specialty. After the kitchen closes, this place transforms nightly into a hip European-style club. Final perk: an impressive wine list.
